Jayhawks sit in 10th place through two rounds at Big 12 Championship


After the weather in West Virginia delayed the start of the Big 12 Championship, Kansas men's golf took to The Greenbrier Golf Course for the first two rounds on Saturday. After 36 holes of action, the No. 29 Jayhawks sit in 10th place overall with a 577 (+17) total score.

KU began its 2019 postseason play by carding a 292 (+12) through the championship's first 18 holes. The Jayhawks improved seven shots as the day went on, posting a team score of 285 (+5) in the second round.

Redshirt freshman Jeff Doty opened his first postseason of his collegiate career by carding 3-under through his first nine holes. He used his strong start to tie his season-best 69 score for round one. Doty is tied for eighth place overall in the 50-player field with his 139 (-1), which would be his highest finish in his collegiate career.

KU sophomore Harry Hillier enters Sunday with a 140 (E) total score, which has him tied for 15th place overall and one shot behind Doty. Sophomore Ben Sigel has a 148 (+8) total score, which is tied for 41st overall.

Senior Charlie Hillier finished fourth on the Jayhawks leaderboard after posting a 152 (+11) score, while junior Andy Spencer shot 155 (+15) through two rounds.

The final round will begin at 8 a.m. Sunday.

Wow! That seems really uncharacteristic of Charlie and Andy. Wonder what effect the weather delay had? I seem to recall that they were hurt by the weather at nationals last year also. They can bounce back.
